Holland America Line Veendam Alaska August 14, 2005

First off I have to say this was my first cruise on Holland America. The ship was very clean. There were hand sanitizer dispensers everywhere. The staff was very nice. The food was ok. But I am not that picky when it comes to food. I happen to like the smaller ships.

If you are looking to party this is definately not a party ship. I was quite bored to tell you the truth. Their big money maker on this boat is Bingo. The patrons on this ship tend to be older. There isn't alot of activity on the ship in the evening. I am in my mid 40's and I have to say I was too young for this ship. I have made 3 other cruises with carnival. Needless to say I was looking for more to do besides Bingo.
